Actor Jackson Rathbone and his wife, Sheila Hafsadi, have welcomed their second child; a daughter named Presley Bowie Rathbone.

The former Twilight star shared the happy news with his fans on Instagram; posting a photo from the delivery room with the caption: “Today!! Our daughter is born!! Presley Bowie Rathbone. 8 lbs., 2 oz. Welcomed into the world at 8:30 a.m. with love & joy.”

Little Presley joins big brother Monroe Jackson VI, who will be four on July 5th. Speaking to US Weekly before Monroe’s birth, the actor and musician said, “One of the greatest things I could expect to be in life is a father…I’m very excited.”

Not long after the couple married in the fall of 2013, Rathbone shared his dream of a large family in an interview with People.  He said, “I grew up with all girls, so if I had a little daughter that would be amazing…But either way, I don’t mind. We kind of hope that we’ll have twins, a little boy and girl. That way we have them both done, and that’s it!”
